Shake, Rattle and Roll: Yugoslav Rock Music and the Poetics of Social Critique

by Dalibor Misina

Electronic book text Publication Date: 01/01/2013

 
From the late-1970s to the late-1980s rock music in Yugoslavia had the important social and political purpose of providing a popular cultural outlet for the unique forms of socio-cultural critique that engaged with the realities and problems of life in Yugoslav society. This book offers an analysis of three musical movements that emerged in this crucial period and argues that the driving force behind the music demonstrates a fundamentally constructive disposition towards the progressive ideal of socialist Yugoslavia.
